Each year, we honour local people who make a difference to the community with our Yarra Community Awards.
Do you know an individual or group who deserve to be recognised for their outstanding contributions to the Yarra community? Whether they’re loud and proud or quiet achievers, we want to celebrate them.
Nominating takes less than 10 minutes and could be life changing for an everyday hero.
What are the categories?
Our 2021 award categories are:
- Citizen of the Year
- Young Citizen of the Year
- Community Initiative of the Year
- Contributions to Arts
- Contributions to Sport

This year we’ve added a special category for Community Spirit, to recognise the individuals and groups who have supported community recovery and resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
What are the prizes?
A cash prize of $500 will be awarded to each winner of Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Initiative of the Year.
A cash prize of $250 will be awarded to the winners in each of the remaining categories.
